RISMEDIA, August 14, 2007–When helping home buyers with young kids purchase a home in Nashville, Brian Copeland knows how important the little ones are in the decision-making process. That’s why he designed some fun ways for kids to participate in the process, and why we chose him as one of this year’s Realtors on the Rise. Here, read about his creative ideas.
Village Real Estate
In real estate since: 2006 Good job: Copeland received the Greater Nashville Association of Realtors “Rookie of the Year” in March. Tennessee first: He launched the state’s first real estate video Web casts of his homes, showing not only the home’s features, but full videos of the surrounding areas and the home’s daily life intersections.
Brian Copeland focuses on children in the home-buying process. He has designed and developed a kid’s interactive scavenger hunt for each day out in the buying process. Little girls receive a garden watering bucket with seeds and information on “green” living. The scavenger hunt also includes a kids’ guide to buying a home, which Copeland developed with the use of some savvy 9-year-olds. Not to forget the boys—they have a pirate chest complete with pirate’s hat and scope.
Finding ways to stay creative in a changing real estate market will also be in focus at this year’s Leadership Conference presented by RISMedia on Sept. 5 & 6 in New York City at the historic Roosevelt Hotel.
